Cliff Edwards was nicknamed "Ukelele Ike."

The person playing the ukulele is Garbo. Joan is the one with all the kids.

 

So I still don't get why you posted 'Ukulele Joan' but showed a picture of Garbo.

 

Oh well, since I play the ukulele it is always nice to see two pictures of someone playing it (and Garbo makes it all the better).

 

PS: The spell checker spells 'ukelele' as 'ukulele'. According to the dictionary, using 'u' is more common then using the 'e', but 'e' is a valid variation.

My mistake. I thought it was Joan.

Nope. That was Garbo, in her more or less original state, pre-MGM makeover. You can see the potential there, but she ain't GARBO. Not yet.

 

And thank you for explanation of "Ukelele Ike." I get what you were going for now. ;)

Are you sure that is Carole Lombard. Often those 'images' sites have pictures of people that are NOT the person associated with the site.

 

Doesn't look like her to me but than she did look different in her very early years.

{font:arial, helvetica, sans-serif}James--Yup that's her. I have the same photo in a book of Hollywood glamour shots called Image Makers:60 Years of Hollywood Glamour p. 90. It's a 1926 general publicity shot for Pathe. She would have been about 18.{font}
